    Well I was a bit premature in my celebrations. Moved the target out to 100 metres and this is the best I got. 24 grains gave around 1440 fps over my chrony but a deviation of around 40 fps over 5 shots. No filler, should I be using filler?...

    Well D day arrived. Was a bit nervous due to a couple of reasons. Had I wasted $2500 on a gun that won't shoot. Will I blow myself up. Range was 40m. 100m next time. First 2 groups were 4 shots, the rest 3. A bit of unburnt powder...

    Hey mate. Interesting what you say about powder reliability. I also ran some 12g reloads over the chrony today. According to the ADI manual they should've been punching along at 1250ish fps but were only showing at 1050-1100 with unburnt powder. ...

    Note: AP70 is the same powder as Universal. For those interested I did some more testing with the 16g today. As always, Im open to any suggestions Didnt go aswell as I'd hoped. The gun shot fine but velocity is atrocious. Using ADI single...

    Thankyou for mentioning accurate molds. I've just ordered the 36-193D. Will be a few weeks but I'm just pleased he ships to Australia. Will start out with 1:20 and go from there. I also have the hitek coating so I'll try that also. If I can...
